The York Revolution signed outfielder Carlos Guzman on Tuesday.
The New York Mets released Guzman in early June after he struggled at Class AA Binghamton this season, batting just .228 with a home run and 15 RBIs in 42 games.
New York signed Guzman, a 25-year-old Brooklyn, NY native, as an undrafted free agent in 2006. His best season came at Class A St. Lucie in 2009, where he batted .290 with 15 homers and 64 RBIs before being called up to Binghamton, where he has played until being released last month.
Guzman has been playing in the Mexican League since his release from the Mets, playing for Minatitlan.
Guzman will provide some depth to a York outfield that lost Val Majewski to the Texas Rangers on Monday. Guzman will join an outfield that already includes Scott Grimes, James Shanks, and Chris Walker.
Revs manager Andy Etchebarren said earlier this week that he expects Guzman to be in uniform for the series at Bridgeport this week.Read More
